Harper's Spanish Restaurant Manchester - reader comments

Trusted Reviewer "The food was tasty but nothing special, the decor is very strange with a mixture of sporting memorabilia that didn't really seem to go. Not the best Spanish restaurant in town, but certainly not the worst." - nick, stockport 14/4/08 (visited on a monday afternoon)

Trusted Reviewer "Harper's is a favourite of many a retired footballer and local celeb as well as being the restaurant of choice for many local business folk and hungry shoppers. It's a welcoming place and the food reflects the decor - simple, non pretentious and homely. There's signed Manchester City and Spanish football shirts, portraits of Manchester United heroes and a huge painting of Olympic medalist Kelly Holmes dominating one wall. Unlike Kelly, the food at Harper's isn't going to win any International medals but that's not what this place is about - it's an all inclusive eating venue with extremely friendly waiters and a great menu, ideal for a light lunch, a family gathering or a full business meal.

The lunchtime menu is excellent value, £9.95 for 3 courses with a good selection of dishes, whilst the a la carte menu is still reasonably priced with a focus on seafood dishes. The Lemon Salmon was tasty although I'm not sure why the lemon was covered in herbs whilst the fish itself lacked any garnish. The Chicken with Chorizo in Tomato sauce was similar in presentation; there basically wasn't any - the focus purely being on the taste of the food itself.

Harpers is nowhere near as impressive as the likes of Paul Heathcote's Grado at Piccadilly or even Evuna on Deansgate - the laminated menu's with pictures of footballs on, the old crockery and the basic decor doesn't help - however it doesn't try to be. Fortunately for Harper's, us Mancunians don't necessarily judge a restaurant on it's decor and that's why it's forever busy!" - Manchester Restaurants 1/3/08 (visited on a friday lunch)

"Always a great place to eat and especially to take Spanish friends" - barry haines, manchester 8/2/08 (visited on a tues eve)

"Great food, great friendly service. Have already recommended friends and family. Very nice set-up, lots to look at with some awesome memorabillia on the walls too" - Andy Smith, Manchester 27/11/07 (visited on a friday evening)

"Having eaten at various places in manchester I always return to this impressive and friendliest of restaurants!" - Simon Hammond, Wrexham 2/10/07 (visited on a saturday evening)

"been customer and friend for many years - would recommend Harpers to anyone, be they locals or visitors to Manchester. Keep up the standards Felix and Euginio!" - Brian Hulin, Denton 30/7/07 (visited on a Tuesday evening)
